The most widely known English translation of the Kama Sutra was made by the soldier, spy, exporer & author Sir Richard Francis Burton & compiled by his colleague Forster Fitzgerald Arbuthnot in 1883. Historian Burjor Avari has criticizedMore The most widely known English translation of the Kama Sutra was made by the soldier, spy, exporer & author Sir Richard Francis Burton & compiled by his colleague Forster Fitzgerald Arbuthnot in 1883.

Historian Burjor Avari has criticized Burtons translation as inadequate, having had the result that the book gained a reputation in the West of being a pornographic work.A recent translation is that of Indra Sinha, published in 1980. In the early 1990s its chapter on lovemaking positions began circulating on the internet as an independent text & is often assumed to be the whole of the Kama Sutra.Alain Daniélou contributed a translation called The Complete Kama Sutra in 1994. This translation featured the original text attributed to Vatsayana, along with a medieval & modern commentary.

Unlike Burton’s version, Alain Danielou’s new translation preserves the numbered verse divisions of the original & includes two essential commentaries: the Jayamangala commentary, written in Sanskrit by Yashodhara during the Middle Ages, & a modern Hindi commentary by Devadatta Shastri.

Another noteworthy difference is the preservation of the full explicitness of the original text. All aspects of sexual life have been mentioned--including marriage, adultery, prostitution, group sex, sadomasochism, homosexuality & transvestism.It was translated again in 2002 by Wendy Doniger, professor of the history of religions at the University of Chicago, & Sudhir Kakar, the Indian psychoanalyst & senior fellow at Center for Study of World Religions at Harvard University.

Their translation provides a psychoanalytic interpretation.
